The news at 8:00 this morning, as reported by several reliable sources, was that Rosenstein had already verbally resigned to Kelly. Almost immediately, of course, there were conflicting reports from other sources:
I used Bloomberg's version this morning, since I consider it to be a reliable source, but since viewing their report this morning, the article got "tweaked" to remove the reference to the his alleged resignation.
Breitbart, of course, was one source that had reported that Rosenstein had resigned, but Axios (a liberal source) also reported the same thing.
Although news seems to move fast these days, it's no secret that Trump has wanted to get rid of both Rosenstein and Mueller for quite a while.
Trump considered firing Mueller in both June and December of 2017, but was persuaded not to by his aides:
According to TIME magazine, Trump has wanted to fire Rosenstein for months.
In April, House Republicans tried to subpoena Rosenstein's notes about the Comey firing, and the House Freedom caucus drafted articles of impeachment against Rosenstein the same month.
It's fairly likely that Trump will fire Jeff Sessions by the end of the year. As the article below points out, though, it would be a really dumb thing to do:
Trump certainly must feel that the walls of justice are rapidly closing in on him. To quote an old phrase, "just because you are paranoid doesn't mean that they are not out to get you".
